Just figured out the hierarchy


That is, sashaying is worse than prancing but better than mincing. Don't argue with me on this.

Update: Ha ha! I forgot, you CAN'T argue with me on this! (Sashaying about the room.) No comments!

Churchill still genociding truth

Daily Caller notes that "fake Indian and mass-murder supporter" Ward spoke at Scripps College (part of that weird Claremont college consortium in California--I think they sell franchises) on, well, you know. The author of the piece, Charles C. Johnson, waxes indignant because, at the very same time (almost), two colleges of the consortium, Pomona and Claremont-McKenna College, ended a tradition they'd had (since 1959!) of "passing a peace pipe at homecoming football games." They did this because a student group (what KIND of student group, huh?) complained:
"'The issue of the inappropriate use of the Peace Pipe as a trophy was not a topic of conversation until October when members of the CMS (Claremont McKenna-Mudd-Scripps) and PP (Pomona-Pitzer) Athletic leadership met with students who are members of our Indigenous Student Alliance (ISA)' ["athletic director" for one or more of the colleges Mike] Sutton said in an email."
The Peace Pipe’s retirement rests on the spiritual context of this religious tradition,” Sutton wrote. “If a group holds an object as sacred whether a pipe, a cross or a menorah, our values here at the college and the other colleges as well lead us to respect that object.”
So I guess Harcourt Fenton Mudd College's Fightin' Crucifiers will have to quit giving opposing teams those bloody little crucifixes after games too. 

Johnson awkwardly ties this in with Churchill being a lying pig and the schools' alleged hypocrisy for inviting him. Jeez, instead of reading this go ride a bike or dissect a frog or something (I've always been a prescriptivist).

Loveliest name ever

Vaselina. Just the "header" on a penis-propper-upper e-mail, but I'm going to marry this woman, society be damned.

Just asked the nice postman lady

How much it was to mail a letter these days.

She didn't know.

She was cuter than a cut bug, though, and she called me "honey." So, more money to the PO is called for, I believe.

Update: Swear to God, she went through her mail looking for a regular letter to confirm our mutually estimated cost (46 cents) and couldn't find one.

Update II: In A Great Improvisation: Franklin, France and the Birth of America, the author, I forget his name, notes that in the Paris of Franklin (and it was his Paris), mail was delivered nine times a day.

Update III: Only to the rich, of course. The poor and homeless got by with four-times-a-day delivery.

Update IV: And sometimes, no delivery at all! Snick.

New art for the D-blog manse

This will be framed and take its place next to (if not above) the D-blog's prized portrait of Kim Jong Il:

Ethereal portrait of Matt Damon (!) giving Michael Douglas an anal massage in the quite hilarious Steven Soderbergh fillum about Liberace and one of his boytoys, Behind the Candelabra, which aired on HBO a few months ago.

Update: In case you're wondering, Douglas is doing a "popper."

Update II: Video head cleaners?

Update III: By all accounts, Douglas was faking it. Damon, on the other hand . . . (NTTAWWT.)

Supreme court refuses to hear Ward Churchill appeal

Finis. The end. Sayo. Nara. (Probably two versions, maybe three, of your basic AP story in them links. Gotta go over to the Wart Stalinarity Network and see what they have to say.)

Update: Under the heading "CU Regents Free to Violate the Constitution," nothin' much.

Update II: Reuters, Inside Higher Ned, and Breitbart, which has a pic of the same crazy "Apologize" lady I took pics of way back when.

Update III: Abnormal font. Sorry, don't know what the hell I'm doing.

Illini Central wins Illinois state 1A b-ball title

One-A in Illinois is schools with a population of one student or fewer.

Actually Illini Central is the former Mason City High in Mason City, IL (pop. 2700, mebbe). The D-blog was incarcerated there in the mid-70s. It was consolidated with a couple of even tinier towns, San Jose (San JOES) and Easton (EAston), some years back.

Always had something of a sketchy relationship with Mason City, but, cool. Here's the State Journal Register's story.
